A special big thanks to Colin Miller Miller & Jason Williamson for last minute snow shovelling that made the entire 8.6km course skiable.

A great battle for thwe first three places in the 8.6km race but Duncan Gibb just held off Charles Fletcher of CBNSC & Arne Bohle.
Duncan Gibb & Beth Maclean become Clashindarroch Cup & Quaich winners 2013. Well done.
Congratulations also go out to Andrew Musgrave, Andrew Young & Alex Standen who were competing in the World Cup 15km F in Davos today. Special mention should be made for Alex who was making his World Cup debut a great comeback after his serious injury last season.

Tour de Ski Round Up

congratulations to Andrew Musgrave who finished his second Tour de Ski by finishing 52nd after the final 9km hill climb stage yesterday. This is the same place as he finished last year but I suspect in percentage terms he has improved a lot, especially after his 11th place in the Sprints. There were 7 stages this year compared to 9 last year.

Also congratulations to Andrew Young for taking part in his first Tour. He only planned to complete the first two stages in preparation for the World Juniors later this month. He looks on form.

And finally congratulations to Roy Young for masterminding another successful foray into international competition for British skiers.

Huntly Championships 2012

This year’s Huntly Championships were blessed with some of the best weather we have seen in the last 5 years. From the start of the races we had wall to wall sunshine and not a drop of rain fell on the track all day.

There was an impressive turn out in the Novice class with 11 entrants highest number in any group for the day, it was great to see so many younger skiers racing. Caringorm put in a good showing in this class with club members Connor Sinclair and Stephanie Dare picking up the first boy and girl titles respectively. Huntly skier Laura Patterson picked up the fastest U10 title, beating her mother Zosia by 34 seconds.

Huntly also did well in the U12/U14 3.7km race, Oliver Newman managed to beat his brother Fergust to 1st U14, while Lynne Gray stole a 5 second lead over Beth Maclean in the U14 F classification.

In the older age groups Cairngorn dominance reasserted itself, with Robers Sircus and Hector Cowie taking off the Senior and U18 titles. Second and Third place in the Senior race was a close run thing with Carl Carrier seeing off Carl Pointer  by a  narrow 10 seconds. Watch out  next year Mr Carrier! Huntly Skier Duncan Gibb took faster U16 M while David Horsley was the fastest Vet M. Fiona Crossley had a lonely race taking first place Vet F.
